Lance Knobel: “The odd case of Erik Ringmar, a tenured lecturer in government at the London School of Economics, shows that even in liberal societies there are plenty of forces ranged against free speech.” 

Michael Paul Gray: “Is any of this sinking in? Well, if not, then it sucks to be you!”

  2. The Power of OPML Sharing

    If you’ve been tuning into the blogosphere 2.0 for the past 20 hours, you probably will be seeing one phrase/service-name all around you and it’s absolutely hot now. When I say hot, I mean it, with a big capital “H”. And that is…
